The Karate Kid comes to London
The stars of 'The Karate Kid' were in London last night for the movie's UK premiere (15.07.10).
Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith -accompanied by his parents, 'The Karate Kid' producers Will and Jada and sister Willow - walked the red carpet in London's Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square for the special screening of the movie.
Commenting on his training regime, 12-year-old Jaden- who plays the lead role in the action movie - revealed he found the schedule punishing.
Speaking at the premiere, Jaden said: "I was so tired. I was doing push ups, pull ups, sit ups and chin ups five hours a day."
And co-star Jackie Chan praised the young actor's dedication, revealing that he is still training now.
He said: "He is so dedicated, training all the time. He is still training now, I sent over my best boy from my academy and he is working with Jaden."
However, he wasn't quite so excited about the prospect of watching the movie again saying: "I've seen it so many times".
Proud parents Will and Jada Smith revealed their excitement at Jaden's future career prospects.
Jada said: "He has the opportunity to do what he wants now so let's just wait and see."
Will added: "There's nothing better to do with your life than make people happy. This is a great job."
